It's been way to much going on lately so I've totally forgot about my blog but I'm alive people. Lately I've graduated, left my second home, American family and friends and I'm right now in Washington, D.C. for a couple of days and then I'm heading back to Sweden. I'm really emotional and sad that I had to leave and I know it's going to take a while to recover and get back to normal again but I'm doing my best. This will be my last time I write on this blog but I'm glad that people actually read it and followed me through my year. I've literally had my best year in my life! I've grown as a person, experienced things I never thought I would and met people that changed my life forever. My American family have become my real family and I love them to death. So if you read this and are thinking about being an exchangeatudent, do it because it's so worth it and you won't regret it a second.
Went to silver lake this morning with pat and drove around with the razer on the sand dunes. I had so much fun!!
Today was a really fun but also a sad day. It was out last day of school. We stayed in school until 11 and had som awards assembly and thank you reception and then we went 30 minutes away to have lunch at this beautiful place right by the lake. We took a bunch of pictures together and I'm going to miss my American friends so much!!
I had an unforgettable evening at prom! I had a blast and after that evening it made me realize even more how much I'm going to miss everyone here.
I was invited to a dinner in school with the seniors and juniors with good grades to receive scholarships for collage. I was also invited because I'm an exchange student so I received two prices. I had to walk up on stage and introduce myself haha. It was fun to see everyone dressed up but it got kind of boring after a while. And it was SUPER HOT! It was 80 outside (28 grader) outside. I don't know where That heat came from but I guess that's typical michigan weather. Right now it's poor raining outside and we have a game in Fremont.
Mariah and I are going to subway for lunch and I can't believe next week is my last week in
Tomorrow is prom!!
Time goes too damn fast when you have fun and that's exactly what happened this year. My year's been flying by and I only have three weeks left. It's unbelievable and I can still not realize that I'm going home soon. I know that I will never be completely at home again because part of my heart will always be elsewhere. That is the price a paid for the richness of loving and knowing people in more than one place.
Next week is my last week in school and the following week is graduation! It's going to be so much fun. Soccer is doing good. We're winning most of the games and tonight we're playing at home against Fremont. Tomorrow me my parents are invited to a honors dinner in school. All the seniors with good grades are invited to receive scholarships.
Saturday is prom :) I'm so excited for that, it's going to be a blast!!
Our cat just got kittens. Soooo adorable
Had a great Easter weekend. Saturday it was my mom Missy's birthday so my dad and I planned a surprise party for her. She thought that one family was going to come up for dinner and stuff but we also invited like 25 other people to celebrate her birthday with a bonfire. we kinda screwed it up a little bit before by saying stuff about it that we shouldn't but she was surprise and happy about it. It was a lot of fun!
Sunday we had Easter lunch without all of Missy's family. It was so hot outside (23 grader) so we sat outside the entire time and had a lot of food and watched the kids searching for Easter eggs :)
Tomorrow my guy friend Andreas, (an exchange student from Norway), is going to move in with us and stay here for a week. His host family is going away somewhere. That's going to be fun.
Had my first game in soccer today after school. We played against reed city and won with 4-0. So awesome!!! The sky was blue and it was warm, perfect weather for soccer. I actually got a lot of play time, I didn't expect that because I haven't played that much before but it went pretty good! Tomorrow we have a home game again against tri county!
